"What are Libranet's goals?"
"We believe that we can produce a first class Linux desktop
system that almost anyone can install and use enjoyably. We expect
to be the distribution of choice for a large segment of the Linux
community and a good choice for those arriving to Linux."
"Why did you choose Debian to base your distribution on?"
"Debian is our choice for a number of reasons. I like the
fact that it is a non commercial distribution. The enthusiasm and
dedication of it's developers makes Debian a pleasant place to
be. The sheer size of the distribution gives us a large choice
when assembling our desktop. I also like the openness of discussion
among the developers and also among the users."
"What makes Libranet different than Debian?"
"I think it is more accurate to say that Libranet is a Debian
system. It is the assembly of a desktop using mostly Debian
components. We have customized the install to be almost automatic
and made a step by step install guide simple enough for new users.
We have left out none of the complexities of the system. We just
handle it for the user without hiding or preventing advanced users
from being able to reach the innards."
